,000 toward president obama's re-election campaign. she held a $40,000 a plate dinner party at sarah jessica parker's townhouse in new york earlier in the fall. she later held lavish fund-raisers, star studded by the way, in london and paris. >> so she's raised all this money and done so much for the obamas, what is she saying? what is vogue saying about this? >> you know, vogue will only officially say that these are still rumors and that she's very happy in her current job. listen, i do know anna wintour a little bit, brooke. and i can tell you that there are people close to her in some circles who would be quite surprised. again, she's the most powerful person in fashion. some have suggested ambassadorial post is a lame duck position that after a couple of years you're out and then what? this is a woman who is a kingmaker in fashion as one publicist said, you can do it without anna but it takes a lot longer. >> alina cho, we wanted to find out what you were hearing, your sources. >>> more information is starting to surface about the events leading up to that murder/suicide involving an nf
is the american people ended elections on november 6th, voiced their approval of president obama's approach to this. over 3 million more people voted for him than voted for mr. romney. and then if you look at house democr democrats. only 201 of us got eelected. that means the rest were republicans. >> i understand that. >> but over 500,000 more votes than they got -- >> with all due respect, representative, we understand that the president won and you feel that democrats won. but is the speaker right? has progress been nil on the talks for two weeks? >> well, i don't know what's been happening for two weeks. i have not been in the meetings. i do know this. when we passed the budget control act, we cut $1.5 trillion. all cuts. another savings of another $200 billion, 1.7 billion coming from cuts. now, it seems to me that if revenue is going to be on the table, let's put revenue on the table. the senate has passed a plan and sent it over to the house. let's vote on it. it provides for middle class tax cut. let's have that middle class tax cut and then let's debate the other issues later on. >
